Memorial Day and Independence Day are upon us and a perfect time to send beautiful flowers to a loved one who serves, or has served, in the military, as well as to leave as a token of appreciation and gratitude at the grave of someone who previously served. Flower experts FTD have partnered with the United Service Organizations, Inc. and rolled-out a line of beautiful patriotic floral arrangements. FTD has committed that 15% of the purchase price of these arrangements will go to the USO, and has guaranteed a minimum contribution of $10,000. Here are the featured arrangements:
Let Freedom Ring
The Let Freedom Ring bouquet is a beautiful blend of red roses and white Peruvian lilies. To cap it off, it arrives with an attractive Waterford Patriotic Star keepsake ornament. These are long-stem flowers and would be perfect for a cemetary vase. Make it a shared experience by arranging the flowers at the grave of your lost loved one, and keeping the ornament for your Christmas tree as a way to honor and remember them at the holidays.
If you are looking for a bouquet of beautiful flowers that honors the red, white and blue, the Independence Bouquet will be right up your alley. An exquisite assortment of red roses and white Asiatic lilies are nestled amongst Queen Anne’s Lace. The whole thing is topped-off by a vibrant blue ribbon and presented in a modern glass bubble bowl. This would be a breath-taking arrangement to receive.
Flowers in Your Inbox!
This eye-catching arrangement mixes all three bold colors, red, white and blue, in a patriotic firework of floral tribute. Featuring red gerbera daisies, blue irises and white Asiatic lilies, the bouquet incorporates minute details of burgundy mini carnations and white monte casino asters. The whole bouquet is showcased in royal blue vase adorned with a red, white and blue ribbon.
American Pride Mini Rose
For year-round patriotism, these bright red mini roses come displayed in a cheerful ceramic upside down top hat, painted to the glory of the red,white and blue stars and stripes. Nestled amongst the roses is a miniature American flag. This would also be a fantastic grave memorial arrangement and will catch the eyes of all passers-by.
These beautiful flowers are an excellent way to bring a smile to the face of recipients, honor the cherished loved ones who are gone, and give back to the brave men and women who put their lives on the line for our freedom.
